National Mutt Day
was created in 2005 by Celebrity
Pet Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Paige,
and is all
embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs. The biggest percentage
of dogs euthanized in the shelter each year are unwanted, medium to large
mixed breed dogs, due to the constant over-breeding and public desire of
designer dogs and pure bred puppies that are sold to pet stores supplied
by puppy mills that often produce ill and horribly neglected animals.
National Mutt Day was created to raise awareness of the plight of mixed
breed dogs in shelters around the nation and to educate the public about
the sea of mixed breed dogs that desperately await new homes. Mixed breed
dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, they live longer and are just
as able to perform the duties of pure bred dogs - such as bomb and drug
sniffing, search and rescue and guiding the blind.
millions of loving and healthy mixed breed dogs sitting in shelters, who are
desperately searching for a new home. One of the county's most famous
is Benji, is a mixed breed Terrier.

local shelter and find a new friend today! If you can't adopt a mixed
breed friend on December 2nd, please donate at least $5 to your local
animal shelter, as they all need financial assistance and every dollar
You can also volunteer to walk a dog, donate food and other
